Vivant!

Sunday 30/08/2009
It's been a while since a restaurant had imposed a great impression on us. Wellington has many cafes/restaurants, most of them are just average or little above average. Vivant certainly stands out among all. Although it is not quite considered as fine dinning but their top notch service and food are well comparable. 2 thumbs up!

After a quick ran through the menu, I decided on their soup of the day (pumpkin) for entrée which is never my normal pick but it appeared the safest bet for me on the menu. Pregnant woman really has limited choices of food when it comes to eating out you know. And, pork belly(yum!) followed by Chocolate cake. The pork belly was exceptionally delicious, the crispy skin was heavenly! I just couldn't care less about the fats and all, hey I don't eat this like everyday, I cleaned the plate! LOL. Rick was extremely pleased with his fried squid, sirloin steak and crème brulee.

Haha, actually they said there is not such thing as eating for two wor. As long as eating enough and healthy then that's good already.

jezalmy:
